Have you seen the Poppystamps Challenge for this month?
It's all about 'Love'. In fact, 'Love Me Do' is the theme.
So whether it's an engagement, a wedding, an anniversary... or any other 'Love' theme you can think of, we would love to see your design.
Will you be playing along?
I do hope so! There is still time.
Here's how my 'Love' themed card was made...
I've started off by using the middle sized Pinpoint Hearts craft die.
To add the slightest hint of a background I've used a few of the die cuts from the Little Kindness set as stencils.
Be very gentle adding the ink. (I used a finger dauber). You want just the smallest amount to add a hint of a design to the background.
Then I've inked up some stamping card using a gorgeous shade of pink liquid watercolour... and once dry, cut out both sizes of Whittle Hearts.
Next comes the stamping (heat embossed). Isn't this just the cutest little stamp set?
This Gentle Hearts die is really so versatile. (It's just been discontinued this week, so if it was on your 'wish list' now's the time to get scouring the shops as some may still have it in stock). I've simply cut it from a strip of black card and distressed the edges.
Notice that I've cut it ever so slightly wider than the width of the card base?
You'll need these two flowers (cut twice as shown) from the Tall Sketch Daisies set. Glue them together to create a little dimension.
Then, using the same grey card, cut out two sets of the Birdsong Mini Corner (see supplies if you aren't sure what this die looks like). You'll be cutting these corners in half as you only need the mini branch with two leaves on.
Assemble the card as shown (you'll need to trim down the flower stems), adding one tiny gem and one black heart... then spray with silver glitter varnish.
I know glitter varnish can be hard to see on a photo. Hope this close up helps!
As always, thank you so much for stopping by today.
Oh, and to save you looking here's a quick reminder...
You have until 12 am US EST on February 26th to link up your design to the challenge blog.
We can't wait to see what you make!
